I love to play Ghost Face, but he is quite disgusting to go against.

The main issue is information feedback for Survivors, the same thing with the Spirit.

When his shroud is active, and you ran to Jungle Gym, T-L wall, other types of wall loops, you literally have nothing to determine where he his, for some reason my skill is nothing and I have to do blind decisions and to be LUCKY to escape him. Is it okay?

And his reveal mechanic is very weird sometimes.

    Maybe Red Stain shouldn't fade completely (by 50% or something like this), no Red Stain while crouched, and make some Green/Purple Add-on remove the whole Red Stain.

    If a killer forces you to avoid your usual tactics and force you into something new, you should innerly thank him, because that is the only way, you will be getting better.

    After my experience, gaming abilities behave always as would they lay in som sort of spiral.

    If you go against better guys, or new game mechanics, your abilities rise. If you go always against the same, or bad enemies, your abilities fall.

    Besides that, every killer abilitie is important because she keeps the whole game interesting.

    I don't think that every survivor like to always against m1 loop hunts, as example.

    Kinda annoying how i can stare right at him and all of a sudden "exposed" and im just like... "okay bs" and of course i get one hit downed thanks to a faulty feature.

    Bit off topic but most people that play Ghostface don't play him the same as he would play in the lore. Same with Demo, you're not really supposed to hit them cause it's just a TV show

    I agree, It's similar to how before GF was added you have tier 2 myers who"s light is extremely dim and short, yet people still mind game him just fine and vise versa, IMO red light wouldn't change much as you were right about how a seasoned killer could just as easily hide their stain mid chase

    You have third person view, that is quite literally the counter to the situation you are describing.

    It's almost like that's his power and you have to play differently against him. It's almost like if he didn't have that, he would be bottom tier M1 garbage. Hell, his main stalk ability is so inconsistent people use his lack of terror radius and red stain as his main power.

    I can't believe I see threads about Wraith and GF having to be nerfed. Have we really reached that point now? Where we just complain and try to get every killer nerfed?

    The only thing I agree on is his stalk and the inconsistent nature of pulling him out of his power. If you're too close as GF/Michael, you can't even stalk people. Sometimes he comes out instantly, sometimes you stare and he just won't come out. Sometimes you hold your stalk and someone a mile away, or behind a wall, starts getting stalked through walls.

    Yeah, I was gonna mention Spinechill as well but I left it out since he was specifically referring to at loops with him.

    Ghostface as well as most the other stealth killers all running the "hit and run" build now is why I've been running Spinechill. It's literally a complete hard counter to them and even just decent against the non stealth killers.

  • FriendlyGuyFriendlyGuy Member Posts: 2,768

    If you have eyes to watch certain spots you got the tools to see him. Yes he got no red glow at that time, but any other killer can mimic that with simple moonwalking.

    He's strong with some builds, but guess what a killer is supposed to be strong.

  • DwightOPDwightOP Member Posts: 1,413

    Ghostface is basically wraith+pig on steroids + the ability to expose someone.

    Imo his shroud/stealth needs to be toned down, it has literally 0 drawback besides a powerbar (which can get filled very quick with addons).

  • DwightOPDwightOP Member Posts: 1,413

    Ikr? Just don't go to strong loops, better run into the open. 11/10 omegabrain starts.

  • ParallaxParallax Member Posts: 106

    any killer can moonwalk to hide their red light 4head

    I think the only thing that should change about GF it's how his stalks works. Sometimes the survivor is revealed if GF stalks his aura, with perks like "I'm all ears" (tested by me).

    When you stop stalking survivors, the stalk progress should start depleting slowy, it's not fair if a survivor gets to avoid you all the match you can still stalk for less than a second and expose him because the stalk progress was at 95% (as an example)

    For the survivor's side

    There should be a closer proximity from where you can reveal GF, without add-ons the distance it's quite a lot

    About the info that ghostface gives... it's not like spirit that you saw her standing still. You can see ghostface even without terror radius.

    Nurse spirit Oni Freddy. I Guess ghostface Is next. What after? Billy aswell? What after wraith? Impressive. Just get good at the Game there is nothing wrong With ghostface at all but his revealing stuff should get fixed but his shroud? Is totally fine.

  • Mr_KMr_K Member Posts: 3,091

    Sounds like someone hasn't played against Plague.

  • doitagain_doitagain_ Member Posts: 374

    Most of the time this happens when ghostface already has some stalk filled up on you so it makes sense.

  • ThisGuuy83ThisGuuy83 Member Posts: 868

    So, instead of adapting and figuring out a new strategy, you want them to nerf the only advantage he has on survivors so you can play the same strategy on every killer?

  • savevatznicksavevatznick Member Posts: 320

    Ghostface's stealth is what makes him good since his stalk is only very situationally better than just hitting someone outright from shroud.

  • Polychrome_BakuPolychrome_Baku Member Posts: 404

    People have often not realized that I stalked them earlier (to 99%) and ran into their obvious field of view to finish the stalk and stab them. In that instance you would never be able to reveal me before I finished stalking you. And if stalking kept progress, it would ruin him. Full stop.

    While I agree that his reveal mechanic should be looked into, your ideas aren't very killer friendly. It should be easier to reveal him when hes standing right in front of you, but you also shouldnt be able to reveal him from halfway across the map... Behind a wall.

    When you think of ways to "fix" a killer try to remember that there are people behind that mask trying to enjoy themselves too. Its not just about you.

  • Polychrome_BakuPolychrome_Baku Member Posts: 404

    The drawback is that he can get spotted which removes his power. A weakness that wraith, pig and myers don't share. Get over yourself and learn how to use that third person camera you have.

  • Polychrome_BakuPolychrome_Baku Member Posts: 404

    GF can "bank" stalk on you as long as he doesn't hit you. Learn the killer before you call something faulty.

    Absolutely not. A stalk takes 2.5 seconds when leaning. Even if you perfectly M1 into another M1, that's still going to take longer than a stalk into an M1 instadown. But that's usually not how it pans out, the M1 gives them a ton of distance and enables them to use dead hard, so there's a good chance you will need to chase them through safe pallets if it's the start of the game.

    A ghostface instadown into a pop goes gen regression with sloppy butcher is some of the most damage you can do in the shortest amount of time in the game.
